Anyone who knows me, knows that languages are almost as big a passion for me as travelling is! Luckily travelling is a great way to discover and experience new languages!

A lot of people think that speaking another language is difficult and won’t even attempt it. But learning a few words or expressions feels a lot more manageable and is fun – the hardest thing is to just try! So in the words of Lonely Planet, don’t just stand there, say something!

Europe in a Day speaks 50 languages that come from across Europe and beyond. These languages (and the number 50!) were chosen to celebrate visiting my 50th country in 2017 and are a mix of languages spoken in countries and territories I had visited and others from places I want to visit.

Europe in a Day speaks:


Albanian – Arabic – Armenian – Azerbaijani – Basque – Belarusian – Bulgarian – Catalan – Croatian – Czech – Danish – Dutch – Estonian – Faroese – Finnish – French – Georgian – German – Greek – Greenlandic – Hungarian – Icelandic – Irish Gaelic – ItalianJèrriais – Latin – Latvian – Lithuanian – Low German – Luxembourgish – Macedonian – Maltese – Manx – Monégasque – Northern Sami – Norwegian – Polish – Portuguese – Romanian – Russian – Scots Gaelic – Serbian – Slovak – Slovene – Spanish – Swedish – Swiss German – Turkish – Ukrainian – Welsh
